The Wu Tang Vs. Martin Shkreli Feud Getting Serious

Wu tang clain ain't nothing to ... well, you know.

Ultra wealthy garbage human Martin Shkreli, who once jacked up price of inexpensive medicines simply because he could, has been in a feud with Wu Tang Clan members for a while now.

Here's the response video:

“How they gon’ live, man?” Ghost asks, sincerely angry about the original inciting incident. “You a real killer, man. But you a soft killer. You a baby, man.”
